NCT can be considered as one of the most ambitious groups in K-pop. After the rotational concept failed with Super Junior, SM decided to create a group with infinite members and so, introduced NCT. The boy group first debuted with six members in 2016 and then went on to create several fixed sub-units like NCT 127, NCT Dream, and WayV. With fans wanting the sub-units to interact with each other, SM decided to have full group comebacks where all of the sub-units would get together once a year. And according to Haechan, it looks like NCT 2021 is right around the corner.

We got the first full comeback in 2018 with NCT 2018 Empathy. It had 18 members and was used to announce the group’s first Chinese fixed sub-unit WayV. In two years, more members were added to WayV and NCT 127. By 2020, Sungchan and Shotaro were introduced as the 22nd and 23rd members of the group. NCT 2020 was their largest comeback yet as we had several temporary sub-units and two full albums. With the NCT 2020 Resonance era ending, the members all went back to their fixed sub-units.

NCT 2021 happening soon

As fans get their favorite members and sub-units interacting, as well as their different music styles merging for the full group comebacks, they have been begging for an NCT 2021 reunion. Well, they already knew it was happening when SM’s schedule for the second half of the year was released. Furthermore, Sungchan had teased that there would be a new sub-unit. On top of that, NCT 127 had joked on ‘SNL Korea’ that they had no idea how many new members would be added and joining them this year for the reunion. Well, we finally got confirmation of NCT’s third group comeback.



On November, 7, during a fan meeting, Haechan was asked about NCT 2021. He gave a spoiler that for NCT 2021's concept, they had tried everything from the SMCU (SM multiverse) project and it would probably be happening in December. Along with Mark, he is the only NCT member to be in two sub-units -- NCT 127 and NCT Dream. The two members have been quite busy in 2021 with two Korean-language comebacks and their repackaged albums. At the same time, another fan uploaded her fan meeting with Mark who had asked if NCT 2021 was a secret or was it okay for him to talk about it.



Excited NCTzens have been trending ‘NCT 2021’ as they made tweets like, “Wdym NCT 2021 ? ! I'm broke asf.” One fan made a reaction meme, “Haechan: "nct 2021 will probably next month." nctzens starting tonight:.” Another fan joked, “Yall are excited for nct 2021 wait until sm decided to produce three ver of photobook , two kihno and jewel case.” Some fans also hoped for all of the members since Ten and Winwin are in China while Lucas’ dating scandal still hasn’t been cleared, “NCT 2021 will not complete without Lucas, winwin and ten.”
